How big should the CF be? If I understand this correctly, you are putting a CF card is a CF to SATA converter and using that as your only drive. If this is correct, then you will have to decide how much room you need for the software packages you need, plus your development needs. This is not something anyone else can determine without a lot more information. > 2.

Swap space is for when you do not have enough physical memory. If you do not want to create swap space on the CF, then I would run without any swap space. Creating a RAMdisk to use as swap is possible, but not practical. Mikkel -- Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
